Photographer’s funky ’80s house in Wainscott is yours for $3.5M

New, 5 comments

The 5,000-square-foot house has a lot of character

Living room with high ceilings and a fireplace.

This creative Wainscott home could be your Hamptons abode for $3.5 million.

Built in 1988, the 5,000-square-foot structure offers three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, double-height ceilings in the living room, a large brick fireplace, wood floors, and a sizable kitchen with an interesting tile backsplash and navy blue professional oven.

This is the first time that the house has been on the sales market. Architect Richard Dattner designed the home for photographer Pete Turner in the late ’80s and eventually Turner and his wife, Reine, moved in full-time by the mid-’90s. Turner’s studio space was designed to be a replica of his studio at Carnegie Hall. According to listing agent Michael Schultz, the house has not received any updates recently, and “to make the house work [the] studio space needs to be converted to additional bedrooms.”

The master suite is sited on the first floor in its own separate wing with a cherry red ensuite bathroom and adjacent gym, while the two guest bedrooms are located on the opposite side of the house where they each have an ensuite bathroom and loft.

Outside, the 1.4-acre property includes two large decks, specimen trees, and a gunite pool with brand new mahogany decking. Residents will be just south of the highway, about two and a half miles from the ocean at Town Line Beach.

Corcoran Group agents Michael Schultz and Susan Ryan represent the listing.
